Christmas Special – The mystery of Immanuel, God with us.

Wednesday, December 24, 2008

2CO 9:15 Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!

ISA 7:14 “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel.”

Too many people focus in on the commercialization of nothing more than a cosmic Christmas.

Life is the fact that those who think they are poor in spirit, they will inherit the kingdom of heaven, MAT 5:3.

MAT 5:4 “Those who mourn, they shall be comforted.”
MAT 5:5 “Those who are gentle, they shall inherit the earth.”
MAT 5:10 “Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

When we look for Him at the front door, He enters by the back door.

When we think He’s surely going to jump into action, He holds back – like Jesus did when Lazarus lay dying.

About the time we give up hope, He comes out of nowhere with life in His hands.

MAT 19:30 “But many {who are} first will be last; and {the} last, first.”

The Red Sea must have looked like the end of the road for the newly freed Hebrew nation… then, surprise.
God parted the waters.

MAT 10:37-38 “He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.”
